Need to remember the prison is ours we just let them stay there. So none of this it's there house or own space. You can't go to a hotel and spark up?

I vaguely remember some movie where tons of missing people were returned to the planet including Glen Miller although he was slightly changed and now played reggae
In some YOI they do get gifts,socks or little stocking filler type things. Staff will usually get a longer dinner there will be a little fewer staff on over the whole day because bang up is usually earlier. You will tend to find its harder to bang up the more difficult cons near the end of your day over the festive period.
We're also doing something different again this year for food. Last year I did a tapas which was amazing. This year with be a 3 bird game pie (pheasant, partridge and duck - all shot locally and prepared by yours truly), roast potatoes and parsnips, carrots and peas with a home made stuffing.
But boss boss....... NO.
No is a good word to have.
You can change a no to a yes easier than a yes to a no if your unsure.

Newbie question alert.

Have been doing as much homework on becoming a prison officer as possible. The annual report that grades prisons on a scale of 1-4 has a few prisons rated as 1.

Are these red sites? Seen mention on these forums that a few of them are calling out for applications as they're understaffed. Is there any chance of these prisons closing?

My googling has highlighted three of them that have previously been rumoured to be closing but nothing seems to have come of this.

Can only assume if they're aggressively recruiting then they wouldn't be thinking of closing surely?!

Sorry for the rambling!
